I have been reading a lot about how women writers continue to face doubts about their legitimacy, from without and within. (The latest a lengthy interview with a group of women writers.) And I have been readingabout how today’s women writers would like to be known simply as writers, despite knowing how…Continue

I've been a published writer for almost 20 years, but until I self-published this year, I was reluctant to call myself a real writer. The whole process was expensive and tiring, like pushing a boulder up a steep mountain in an evening gown and pumps.
Part of the problem was that I had…Continue

I went to an interview and my words came out
They had made a quick escape and started milling about
Moving faster than I thought possible, there were too many to count
I couldn’t get them back in and I couldn’t shut them down.
Things weren’t going well. The interviewer…Continue

In a class I am teaching this semester–“Mad Geniuses and Scribblers: Portrayals of the Author in Nineteenth-Century America”–we read some samples of the criticism that was directed at women who ventured into print in the 1850s, beginning with Hawthorne’s famous diatribe against the “damned mob of scribbling women.” I noticed that many of the female students seemed to be squirming in their seats and grimacing. When one swore, after I read one particularly virulent quote, I stopped and asked…Continue

With Halloween trying to sneak up on us, it's time to look without fear at the differences between what makes men scary and what makes women scary.
For example, your male villain in a horror movie must have third-degree peeling burns and open sores over most of his body; that's a given. It's a plus if he's wearing gloves…Continue

Recently, my mom stayed with us so that I could get some writing done. We joked that she would be my “wife” for a week, and she was more or less. She kept the kitchen clean and my daughter fed and occupied while I worked from 6:00 am until lunchtime. When she left, I missed her. Not just because…Continue

I wanted to buy a T-shirt saying “Does this T-shirt make me look fat?” except it was too small.
It was my most recent low self-esteem shopping moment. Women have a lot of low self-esteem shopping moments thrust upon them by smart-alecky store mirrors and inner-demons.
This is especially true when the mirrors are positioned under hideous florescent…Continue

Last week I saw a girl wearing a yellow dress so tight it should have been made out of "caution" tape. I might well have been one of the few middle-aged heterosexual women looking at her and thinking "God bless America." The glazed-eyed lingering glances of admiring men indicated that they were also giving thanks but probably for different reasons.…Continue

I had to blog about my reaction today at the grocery store, when a lady asked another woman whether the child in her buggy was hers. I was beside myself, I would've wigged out, but I handled myself quite well. I just blogged until I felt better, how do you feel about the situation? check it out at http://www.cherylseagraves.blogspot.com

The other day I was captivated by the words of a sixteen year old girl, Malala Yousafzai the young Pakistani student who was shot by the Taliban, survived, and has resumed with added fervor her passion--equal education for women and girls. Her speech set my thoughts on the volumes of female stereotypes writers conscious or unconsciously perpetuate. Women nurses, wives, artists, lovers, activists in stories are often…Continue
I have been writing for an online magazine for about three weeks now. I was concerned at first about the age of their readership, which is about 16 to 25. I'm going to be 50 next April! I am the mother of a 9 year old so parenting and kids' stuff are easy, but it's not all I want to write about. How on earth do I write younger than my age?
Firstly, it's been 25 years since I was 25! When I was 16, I was so incredibly shy that I never spoke to anyone so how would I know…Continue
